Last week one of our intern designers asked me if there was any way to copy and paste adobe Photoshop guides from one Photoshop document to another.
I answered: sure, I will try it and get back to you, but the easy way is to save a template with guides and use it every time you start a new file for that size.
She replied: I know but I want to use it to fix the alignment in existing files not new ones; and copying layers to a new file for every image takes much time! and I already found a video talking about that, but in the video they are using some codes and I didn't know what to do!
After some research I didn't find a way to achieve that so I watched the video she mentioned before, they are using a script to copy and paste guides so I downloaded the script file and added it to the adobe Photoshop scripts folder and tried it as it shows in the video but it didn't work!
So I opened the script and started reading and found out that I should press "Shift" button in the keyboard when copying and guess what it's working!
but I edited the script a bit, I split the script into 2 script files one to do the copying and another for the paste.
Now I will show you how to do that. list start :
and we are done.
